Octopuses Embedded in Ceramic Vessels by Keiko Masumoto

June 8, 2017

Christopher Jobson

Ceramic artist Keiko Masumoto is intensely interested in the intersection of art and craft, whether a craft object can simply be decorative or if an artistic work can still remain functional. Her questions have resulted in a series of traditional ceramic plates, bowls, and vases embedded with unlikely objects from wriggling octopuses to entire buildings. You can explore a bit more in her online portfolio and at Spoon & Tamago.
